Federation of Greater Baton Rouge Civic Associations

Governance

General Membership Meetings are open to guests and to all individual members (in addition to authorized delegates) of organizations that in turn are full members of the Federation. These meetings commonly feature Guest Speakers or educational workshops.   For matters requiring a vote, one vote is allowed for each member organization in good standing.


Board of Directors - During the interim between General Membership Meetings, the affairs of the Federation -- with several important exceptions -- are managed by the Board of Directors. Those exceptions are that the Board is expressly prohibited from exercising any policy-making function, incurring any indebtedness, obligating under contract, or disbursing the Federation's funds except as has been specifically authorized by the Federation General Membership.


Board members are voluntary positions and are elected at the November General Membership Meeting and serve 2 year terms. Each year, the Board in turn elects the Federation's officers from among the Board's members:  Officers include:  President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer.
